To quote Bartlett, “LGBT travelers should feel relaxed traveling to Jamaica. It’s tourism for all in our country, regardless of gender, religion, handicap, or sexual orientation.”
Edmund Bartlett is keen to simplify confusion and tension with the international LGBT travel community while speaking to eTN publisher Juergen T. Steinmetz.
